The Nursing Care Teaching and Research Unit (AIDIR) was created by the Universitat Internacional de Catalunya in partnership with Fundación La Esperanza, Fundación Roure, Obra Social “la Caixa” and other associations in the Ciutat Vella district.
It is focused on health education activities for people at risk of social exclusion with unfavourable health conditions and their relatives, and it is open to the whole community. The students offer their knowledge and skills to the people/families (community) and this allows for learning in a reciprocal environment.
Unit launched in September 2016.
Specific objectives of the Unit
To help improve the social reintegration of the most disadvantaged people/families at risk of social exclusion by creating active learning opportunities in terms of physical-emotional health, cohabitation and work health.
